excuse the potty language...

Maybe we'd respect the toliet more if they were more like this...doubtful, but maybe.

DISCLAIMER: If you find the talk of toliets offensive I suggest you refrain from reading this post.

Here's the thing, public bathrooms are gross.
But do they have to be SO gross?
I remember walking into a bathroom once and turned right around and walked away as quick as I could. I swear there was a minor explosion in there.
On vacation a few weeks ago I walked into 3 of the 4 stalls before I found an acceptable toliet.
I have to say I've never complained to the management about nasty toliets but I'm beginning to think I should.They always have those signs in the restrooms stating something like, " If you find these restrooms unacceptable please let us know."
I almost always do find them "unacceptable"
Listen, I don't spend each day scrubbing the toliets in my house, but nobody in my home seems to have a problem (for the most part) doing thier business into the toliet...and I live with all boys.
Nobody who has visited my home has had a minor explosion.
I just would like to meet one of these people who, for lack of a better phrase, "let it all out" and then some. Look, I'll be honest I've heard some people in obvious pain in the stall next to me before. I also know that I myself have had an emergency situation but even then I manage to leave the toliet the way I found it.
We all know the port-a-potty has a bad rep. but we expect that.
Why has the public toliet gone so downhill?
Maybe it's just that people don't have respect for property that is not their own. Perhaps they save their nasty business for the public so they don't have to clean it up at home.
People clog toliets with baby wipes...not supposed to flush those people!
Woman do who knows what with their items at that time of the month...come on ladies!
I don't get it.
All I know is I've had it.
Respect the toliet people.
Respect the toliet.
Vent of the day now over. Happy Monday!

My dear friend... I found a website, a time ago, that will make an amazing follow-up to your post today.

This site lets you put in an address, city and state (only major cities available) and shows you the nearest, nicest bathroom available! People rate these bathrooms! Haha! I couldn't believe it!

It's available via computer AND it's formatted for your mobile phone. Seems like a great site for you girls to bookmark on your phones, if you have internet, anyway.

Did you ever hear the story about the church bathroom on the lower level and what happened in there?
Give me a call sometime and I'll tell the tale. It ain't pretty.

I agree with you. I hate going in public bathrooms. You never know what you will find.

How are you feeling. I hope you are doing good. When do you find out what you having. I can't wait.

I owned a coffeehouse and people would come to our place to use our bathrooms. They would come from their offic buildings to use our bathrooms. I wouldn't recommend it, but you could have eaten off the floor in there.

Most of our customers knew us. We cared for them, they cared for us. They treated our place like a home. Maybe that's why we couldn't compete with the chain stores lol Well, it was a great place and we had great bathrooms.

Have a great day!
